I am constantly on the lookout for resources for our clients with RSD/CRPS. Here is an organization that may be helpful for folks suffering from this horrible disorder:
The International Research Foundation for RSD/CRPS is a non-profit organization located in Tampa, Florida whose goal is education and research on RSD/CRPS. The Executive Director of the Foundation is Mary Davis. Their mission is to help educate the medical profession on RSD/CRPS and to establish an international research network as well as provide support for RSD research worldwide.
Located on the grounds of the International Research Foundation’s campus is the RSD Treatment Center and Research Institute. Founded in February of 2008, the Center is the world’s first institute of its kind, dedicated exclusively to RSD/CRPS. The Institute provides specialized treatment to children with RSD that is available nowhere else in the United States. Director of the RSD Treatment Center and Research Institute is Dr. Anthony Kirkpatrick, M.D. Dr. Kirkpatrick devotes much of his time and energy to educating physicians worldwide on causes and treatment of RSD/CRPS.
On their site are recent articles geared towards the medical community discussing available treatments for RSD, including the Ketamine Coma procedure, not available in the United States but currently performed in Germany. This procedure is only performed on patients who get no relief from the standard methods of treatment for RSD.
Under the Patient Info tab are several interesting educational videos, as well as detailed information on some of the common medications used for pain relief. One particularly moving video is entitled Emotional Consequences of RSD, detailing how 4 young peoples’ lives have been affected by the condition. Located at the bottom of the page is a link to a story by CNN’s Paula Zahn on the Ketamine Coma procedure as performed on a 14 year old girl.
